The IDEAS group was formed as a means of providing multi-disciplinary services to children and their families. Of the eight people who started IDEAS in August 1992, Karen McIntosh remains as the director. New associates have been added over the years.

IDEAS provides Speech-Language Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Psychology and Specialized Tutoring services to children, adolescents and families in and around the city of Calgary. Assessment, therapy, consultation and workshops are offered by each discipline. Interdisciplinary assessment and consultation services are available. We are located in the Willow Park Center with free parking.
